The Fundamentals of Face Makeup
Are designed to help even out skin tones, smooth the texture of facial skin, and cover-up scars, acne, or hyperpigmentation. The level of coverage a foundation can provide ranges from sheer to full-face coverage. Foundations can provide different finishes such as sheer, dewy, and matte. Most cosmetics companies have a range of colors to match any skin tone. Foundations come in stick, cream, liquid, and powder form. Application of foundations can be done with brushes, applicator sponges/beauty blenders, and fingers.
Tinted Moisturizers and BB Creams
Work a lot like foundations, they cover up imperfections, even skin tones, and improve the texture of the skin. One major difference is that tinted moisturizers and BB creams are moisturizers that have a tint to match the skin tone while moisturizing at the same time. Another difference is that tinted moisturizers don’t provide full coverage, they usually provide more sheer coverage. This allows you to get a more natural look. Tinted moisturizers can provide a dewy or a matte finish. BB creams and tinted moisturizers can be applied in the same ways as a foundation.
Can be used to set foundations and concealers, or they can be used alone as a light foundation. Typically face powders only provide a matte finish once applied. Face powders come in different skin tone colors, and they also come in translucent for setting foundations. Powders are applied with brushes or sponges.
Are applied after other face products have been applied to set them and prolong their wear. Setting sprays can provide a matte or dewy finish.
